The Botanique has become a cultural Centre since 1984. Formally, it was a Botanique garden, with gorgious greenhouses. Nowadays, it still show its wonderful architecture, together with up-to-date concert venues (Orangerie, Rotonde, Witloof Bar ...). Discover our many concerts over the year through our website or visit our galery called Museum, with its 4 or 5 big exhibitions a year (photography, paintings, ...).

A botanical garden without any great surprises but it is worth a visit in the spring and summer especially. Even in the winter it is relaxing place to escape the traffic and crowds of the surrounding area

I went there for a concert at Orangerie. The place is cool because it's small so very intimate but when I went the tickets were sold out and inside the venue was so hot and had not ventilation expect if I'd stand by the door. Also only one door which makes coming in and out hard even if is only... More

We originally came here for the vintage strip photo booth, but it's been moved to a shop near Bourse. Gardens are beautiful though so not a wasted trip.

Saw Swedish folk-pop group First Aid Kit at Le Botanique - an excellent band in a great, intimate music venue.

The gardens are beautiful even in the winter but the building seems a little bit neglected and with not so many things to see!

Very nice gardens, nothing very special, but pleasant to go for a walk around. We also went in November so there weren't any flowers around, perhaps Spring would be a better time for a visit.

A lovely peaceful place to visit. You may as well be in the contry. Lovely and well kept. The ponds do need a bit of a clean but it makes for a lovely early morning walk

Autumn should be a nice time to visit, but it was a bit dark and damp. Walked through but not really the best time to visit. I will come back when it's spring or summer.

The gardens are lovely to walk around, however some parts did feel a bit run down. We didn't go inside the building but saw they do live music most nights. It was fully booked for our stay.
